Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC is investigating Western Milling for its ESOP’s initial purchase of the company’s stock from the shareholders for an inflated value, causing a multi-million-dollar loss to the ESOP.

The Western Milling ESOP was formed in 2015 to purchase the company from the CEO and President. To make the purchase, the ESOP borrowed $244 million. In December 2015, as required by the U.S. Department of Labor, the stock was re-appraised and had lost 89% of its value in about seven weeks, dropping in value to only $26.6 million.

If you are a current or former employee of Western Milling and are or have been vested in the Western Milling ESOP, you may be affected by Cohen Milstein’s investigation.
